Doctoral Degrees and Habilitations

Department of Mathematics

Information about Doctoral Degree Studies in the Department and an overview of Doctoral Degrees and Habilitations over the past few years.

Doctoral Degrees

Particularly interested and qualified students can follow up their master’s degree program with a doctoral degree program. On average, one quarter to one third of all M.Sc. graduates per year discuss plans to pursue doctoral studies with a professor in the department.

Obtaining a doctoral degree in the Department of Mathematics

The legal basis for a doctoral degree in the Department of Mathematics are the Doctoral Degree Regulations (PO) of the University of Stuttgart. In the case of doctoral degree studies in the graduate schools SimTech the regulations of these institutions also have to be taken into account.

There are many different ways to become a professor: The doctoral degree is typically followed by a post-doc or junior professor phase to shape and consolidate the individual research and teaching agenda. This phase culminates in a habilitation or a habilitation-equivalent positive evaluation.
